No downside to depth on Vikings defensive line
MANKATO — When Minnesota’s veteran defensive linemen are pulled from a game for a play or two to rest, the coaches are well-prepared for the response.
The summons to the sideline has often been greeted like a root canal. Or a debt collector. Or a week in seventh-grade detention.
So with the starters one year older and the Vikings even deeper at a position group already one of the team’s strongest, well, these gripes are bound to grow louder.
